AnnotatED: Making Reading Active, Visible and Social With Collaborative Annotation
In collaboration with the Online Learning Consortium, MERLOT and AnnotatED, the community for annotation in education, Hypothesis is convening a free workshop on collaborative annotation at OLC Innovate 2021. Register now to join us 10am–12pm CT Friday 12 March 2021.
The workshop will start with a quick orientation to collaborative annotation for social reading: What is it, and how are people using it to enrich online learning?
Then we'll shift to a hands-on activity to explore, discuss, and augment readings selected by our special guest educators, focused on topics related to their OLC Innovate presentation on connecting with students through intentional instructor presence. We'll practice reading together to see firsthand how social annotation can build understanding, connections, and community with Rebecca Cottrell, Ann Obermann, Adjoa Robinson, and Lee Scriggins from the Department of Social Work, and Meredith Jeffers from the Department of Modern Languages at Metropolitan State University of Denver. Our conversation will be anchored in text — literally — and spread out to engage other texts, ideas, and people beyond the workshop itself.
The second half of the workshop will combine with a special edition of Liquid Margins, the show where we gather to talk about collaborative annotation, social learning, and other ways we make knowledge together. You'll join episode 20, "Making Sense of Science With Social Annotation," to meet up with educators using social annotation to help students read, interpret, and comment on scientific texts — and share their “findings” with each other. Hypothesis scholar in residence Remi Kalir will moderate a conversation with Erin McKenney, Assistant Professor of Applied Ecology, and Carlos Goller, Associate Teaching Professor, both from North Carolina State University; and Melissa McCartney, Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences at Florida International University and the Director of Research at Science in the Classroom, an AAAS program that helps students learn to read real-world scientific literature.
